Dec 10, 2014 – Stephanie Okereke’s Brother Denies Rape Scandal, Says UNILAG Student, Former Girlfriend Wanted Money

Daniel Okereke, the elder brother of Nollywood actress Stephanie Linus Okereke has spoken up on his rape scandal involving a University of Lagos undergraduate.

The unidentified lady accused Daniel of raping her on the 6th of November 2014.

Read his own side of the story below:

It took me a while to react to these baseless allegations about my good self because I had to investigate to know if it was truly me they were referring to or someone was impersonating me. I wouldn’t have responded but for the numerous innocent readers who may have been misled by this untrue publications which was never verified before going public. I thought that balanced reportage had to do with getting both sides of the story. What happened between me and my estranged friend was a case of a woman who claimed she was heartbroken because she discovered I am in a very serious relationship.

She flared up when she realized and started demanding that I must settle her since I was not taking her seriously not to talk of marrying her. She demanded for two million naira (N2m) and a Toyota Yaris car as settlement else she would scandalize my name and that I know I wouldn’t want that since according to her I come from a popular and wealthy background. I took it as one of those empty threats until I now read about this complete sham about my good self.

How can someone say you were beaten up by seven (7) guards before canal knowledge of you prevailed? Someone who claimed she was sick? She must be a female wrestler in the WWE (The World Wrestling Entertainment) for such measures to be required before a strong tall guy like me will need to force her to have canal knowledge of her. Someone who claimed she was raped could also muscle out strength to destroy my properties in front of the so alleged seven guards? If I were a nobody would she be priding in saying I allegedly raped her? I know that the thought of possessing me is your dream but you didn’t need to go this shameless way.

Those that may have advised you to do this (if any) gave you the worst advice ever because you can’t have me through cheap blackmail. Let me make it crystal clear that there was never a case of rape nor assault. I have decided not to reveal more shocking details on this sad episode because her family initiated peace moves towards mine and I strongly believe in the biblical saying “to err is human but to forgive is divine”. In a country where people can use some sections of the media to publish unverified stories of even the highest offices in the land, then who am I to bother if such crude treatment is meted out to a rising star like me. Must we continue to destroy our very best because we have a very few media platforms that are willing tools to be used. This is sad and unkind.

Why will they want to bring in a respected elder stateswoman Prof. Ndi Okereke-Onyiuke, OON, into an issue where the alleged accused is an adult who should take full responsibility of his actions and in-actions. A woman who worked tirelessly day and night to develop the Nigerian Capital Market and by extension the Nigerian economy which in turn put food on the tables of millions of Nigerians and beyond. During her tenure as the DG of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, the Capital Market was bountiful and prospered as never before. She is an institution in this country and should please not be dragged into trivial issues like this. She should be respected as such.

Thank you all for doing so.

I appeal to those sections of the media that publish unverified stories to please verify before going public because they have the tools to make or mar peoples’ images. I hope that all the respected media sources that publicized this untrue story will be kind enough to do a retraction. God bless you as you do so. I thank all those that called me and sent text messages and said we know you did not do those things. I also thank those who do not know me that said negative things about me, and the reasons are obvious – they do not know me. My humble advice to them is not to thrive on hearsay but facts because it is me today; no one knows whose turn it might be tomorrow. Thank you for reading. God bless us all and Merry Christmas.

    Daniel Okereke ,you claim the lady that accused you of raping her wants your money…I think you should tell that to the Almajiris on the street of Kano or those that care and have the time to listen to your lies;

    The lady that accused you of raping her is not dead yet –she is a University of Lagos student called –Arinola.
    The lady was interviewd by Chioma Igbokwe for Saturday Sun
    ..And this is what -Arinola gave as her account of her story;
    According to Arinola, 22, and a student of University of Lagos, Akoka, she met Daniel Okerereke through an online dating site, early last month. “We became friends online and I gave him my number. He kept calling requesting to see me in school and I kept giving him one excuse or the other. He actually said that he wanted me to be his friend and I declined that I am a student and should be allowed to face my studies.

    “On November 6, 2014, he called me that he was in my school compound. I was sick and told him that I was about to head to the pharmacy to get drugs. He volunteered to drive me to the pharmacy. I was impressed and grateful for such a kind gesture. After buying the drugs, we drove to the fast food and bought food. He asked me to join him to a seat out joint where I can relax and eat the food. I was surprised when he drove straight to his house at Mende, Maryland.”
    “When we got to his house, I told him that I was not interested in having sex with him, he called two of his security guards to help him to tie me up and seal my mouth. He then brought out his belt and started flogging me
    He said that I will be the one to the bear the shame since the world will ask what I was doing in his house when I was supposed to be in school,” Arinola narrated.
    “When it dawned on her that the Daniel Okereke is a beast in sheep’s clothing, Arionla stopped struggling and parted her legs for the Prince. “He raped me severally till he was satisfied. He later removed the ropes and ordered me to get out of his house. I was in pains and knew that since the law will finally release him because of his sta¬tus, I needed to destroy anything within reach. It was the neighbours whose car was destroyed that alerted the police at Area F, Ikeja.
    “I wrote my statement and went to the hospital for examination. I was not surprised when I was told that he was granted bail the same day. My family had to report the matter to Panti and he was re-arrested.”

    Daniel Okereke – what this not what you told the police when you got to the police station on that day:
    You said and I quote “I am so ashamed of myself. We are family of professionals whom you know very well. I don’t know what got into my head. I am sorry and plead for forgive¬ness,” Daniel, who said he was single and still searching, pleaded.
    When asked why she destroyed the property in his house, Prince Daniel said: “She thought I was going to force her to have sex with me. She started destroying everything which is so expensive,” he said specifically referring to his Chandelier lighting hanging in his living room.
    When further asked if he eventually slept with her, Prince Daniel said: “Yes, I did. I am very sorry, I need a way out.”
    Confirming the story as at press time , Police Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Nwosu said that the suspect would be charged to court for rape and assault.
    According to him, the report got from Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, showed that there was actu¬al penetration in the course of the squabble. “He will be arraigned along side with one of the security men who assisted the sus¬pected to subdue Tope. Meanwhile, the po¬lice is still on the trail of one of the security guards who also participated in assisting the man to tie her up.”

    Daniel Okerere is it not true that you were arraigned in court at the Yaba Magistrate’s court -along with two of your security guards?
    Here is an extract from the court proceedings covered by Vanguard News reporters;

    Two men Daniel Okereke 37 and Idris Abubakar 37 were yesterday arraigned before a Yaba Chief Magistrate’s Court, over alleged assault and rape and threat to life. The defendants who are businessman and a security Guard respectively were docked before Magistrate Y. O Aje-Afunwa. They are facing a five count charge bordering on conspiracy, assault, rape and threat to life preferred against them by the police.
    The police prosecutor Superintendent Godwin Anyanwu, told the court that the defendants committed the alleged offence on November 6, 2014. He said that the incident took place at Mende, Maryland in Ikeja area of Lagos state between 2:30-11pm. He said that the first defendant allegedly raped and assaulted one lady (names withheld).

    Anyanwu also claimed that the defendant unlawfully had canal knowledge of the victim without her consent, adding that he beat her up with a brown belt and also threatened her with a knife. According to the prosecutor, the offences committed,contravened sections 409, 171, 261 and punishable under section 56 and 258 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

    Earlier, the defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges against them. The defendants counsel, R. Amokea, urged the court to grant the defendants bail in the most liberal term, as the offence committed, was a bailable offence and that they were still presumed innocent until proven guilty.

    The prosecutor Anyanwu objected to the bail application, on the grounds that the charges levelled against the defendants were charges of rape, sexual assault and occasional harm. However, Magistrate Aje-Afunwa, granted the first defendant bail in the sum of N200,000, with one responsible surety in like sum, while the second defendant was admitted bail in the sum of N50,000, with one surety in like sum. She also said that the surety must either be a relative, a cleric or a community leader.

    The matter was adjourned till January 9, 2015, for trial.
    If anyone is in doubt of this story ;you can confirm the story from the Police Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Nwosu- at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti.

    Animal in human skin! Bloody criminal. U think dropping names will make people think you are innocent? Even if you are the President’s only child, you will pay for the crime you committed. No criminal should go unpunished. Hopefully, justice will be served.

    This Daniel Okereke guy is a shameless liar. Have you forgotten the statement you made at the police station the day you were arrested? How come you are now singing a different tune? This has been your modus operandi from reliable sources from your village of Ngor Okpuala. No amount of you are from a rich family will save you good for nothing idiot rapist. You must serve the time in prison when convicted.
